Simple Pleasures

The local generic Shaw's brand of yogurt is:
  1. OU
  2. fat free
  3. and already mixed (i.e. not "fruit on the bottom").
Anyone who keeps kosher will understand what unbelievable fortune this is.

"Fruit on the bottom" yogurt is like eating communism. And "already mixed" yogurt is usually chock full of gelatin (read: horse bones). I don't know how this is kosher, but I'll let the OU get away with it this time.

Life in the Styx began as an email newsletter (long story short) I sent out to my friends because my internet access was only for 5-10 minutes a day. So I would write a long letter and then send it out to my friends en-masse so as to maximize the brief internet time.

That newsletter grew to over 100 subscribers over the next 5 or so years. I claim that this current blog is the "oldest" because the original newsletter was very much like a blog in tone and style.
